If you happen to have 40 pot plants growing in your apartment, you're probably going to get caught if you leave a trail of cannabis crumbs inside your place for the cops to follow.
According to court documents obtained by New Times, police allege that's exactly what 26-year-old Jesse Duncans did yesterday.
While a Boynton Beach police officer was strolling around the pool of the Pelican Point apartment complex, he noticed Duncans smokin' the reefer on his patio, cops say.
The officer ordered Duncans not to move, but he grabbed a pile of weed he had on the table -- which also included a bong and a plant named "Bubba" -- and ran inside anyway, according to police.
After making sure no one else was in the apartment, the officer noticed a trail of weed crumbs leading from the living room, up the stairs into Duncans' bedroom where -- voilà! -- the cops say he found Duncans and his closet full of pot plants.
Police obtained a search warrant, whereupon they say they found 40 plants totaling 361 grams of weed -- about three-quarters of a pound.
Duncans was hauled off to the Palm Beach County Jail, where he awaits charges of cultivation of a controlled substance and resisting arrest.
